Kings Island – Halloween Haunt


There’s nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. Screams of pure panic pierce the night. There’s nowhere you’re safe in the most immersive horror experience in the region – Halloween Haunt at Kings Island!

Halloween Haunt is a veritable playground of terror featuring more than 600 vile creatures lurking in the shadows searching for souls, 15 highly-intense and spine-chilling haunted attractions, and some of the most hair-raising rides on the planet.

This year, the nightmarish madness of Halloween Haunt will feature two new mazes, Board to Death and Delta Delta Die; a new scare zone, Backwoods Bayou, and Ed Alonzo’s Psycho Circus of Magic & Mayhem, Part II show in the Kings Island Theater.

Returning mazes include CarnEvil, Club Blood, CornStalkers, Holiday Horror, Madame Fatale’s Cavern of Terror, Slaughter House, Tombstone Terror-Tory, Urgent Scare and Wolf Pack.

Back by popular demand for a fifth season is Hot Blooded, a live stage show in the Showplace Theatre. Graveyard Shift in the Festhaus and Blood Drums on the International Street Bandstand also return this fall.

Kings Island’s favorite thrill-rides are open during Halloween Haunt. Favorites include The Beast, Diamondback, Firehawk, Vortex, Drop Tower, Invertigo, Delirium, Flight Deck, The Racer, Flight of Fear, Adventure Express, Backlot Stunt Coaster, Monster, Zephyr, Scrambler, Shake, Rattle & Roll, Dodgem, Boo Blasters on Boo Hill and the Viking Fury.

The seventh annual Halloween Haunt will start September 20 and run every Friday and Saturday night through October 26.

Friday nights feature the “Wall of Monsters” when the gates to the underworld open at 6:00pm. Only the bravest of souls will make it past the vast array of vampires, werewolves, mummies, zombies, undertakers, clowns and assorted ghouls and monsters they’ll encounter on their way into the park.

On Saturdays, the park opens at 11:00am with the transformation into Halloween Haunt beginning at 5:00pm.

Halloween Haunt is not for the faint of heart and will ravage your senses. This in-your-face horror experience continues to break new ground and is filled with terrifying mazes, disturbing clowns in 3D and outrageous live shows.

Parents, be advised. Halloween Haunt includes graphic scenes, suggestive themes and intense imagery and is intended for mature audiences; not recommended for children.
